Legal Question

Asked on: 9/26/09, 6:37 pm

I am the custodial parent of my six month old child. Today, September 26th, 2009, I received a text message from the child's father which stated, "We have a court date on November 9th but effective immediately I have temporary visitation on Sundays 12-6 Wednesdays 5:30-8:30." He stated that he has paperwork and I should have something in my mailbox. When I got home there was a notice from the Post Office that I had certified mail which I am not able to retreive until 8:00 am Monday morning. If I am not home tomorrow, which is when visitation is due to begin, because I had prior engagements, would I be in contempt of court or would there be any other legal action that could be taken against me? Thank you for the advice!

You need to have notice before you can be held in contempt of court. If you have not received any official notice about this then I would not give the child's father visitation. He needs to produce proof that he is actually entitled to visitation.

Why is he seeking additional visitation time? He has to have a good reason in order to do this.

I would be happy to represent you in this process.
